Windows 7: Retaining Email Accounts, Safe Senders, etc on New Install

Retaining Email Accounts, Safe Senders, etc on New Install

Hi All -

This has been an ongoing problem since forever with Outlook (in my opinion). I upgraded to the Outlook 2010 Beta (32-bit) from Outlook 2007 and have been using it for several months with favorable results. I want to upgrade to the final production release since the beta is running out. I want to uninstall the Outlook 2010 Beta and install the production version, possibly 64-bit. However, I keep 13 e-mail accounts (POP3, IMAP, Hotmail) and there are safe senders it has stored, show images from safe sites, etc that has been registered with the Beta and I want to transfer those to a new installation of Outlook 2010 without having to re-enter all those email account settings and my customizations to them and be re-recognizing safe senders and safe sites for the next few months.

Is there anyway I can completely uninstall the Outlook 2010 Beta, install the Outlook 2010 production version, and transfer all the accounts, safe senders/sites, etc without having to start from scratch re-entering all this? Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm running Windows 7 and Easy Transfer will install only on XP or Vista. I downloaded the Vista version and it would not install. "This update is not applicable to your computer."
